PhotoSpiva announces 2007 competition
The George A. Spiva Center for the Arts in Joplin, MO has announced the latest call for entries for the oldest continuing photography competition in the United States. PhotoSpiva 2007 is open to any photographer in the United States or its territories. This year's exhibition will be juried by CameraArts Contributing Editor John Paul Caponigro. $2,000 in cash prizes will be awarded, and any photographic process is eligible. The juried exhibition will take place April 28 to June 22, 2007. Entry fee is $40 for up to five prints.
John Paul will also present a lecture, "Reflections," on March 11, 2007, at Cornell Auditorium on the campus of Missouri Southern State University. During the talk, he will show his images of water, one of the planet's most precious resources, and will share his thoughts about the extraordinary changes taking place in contemporary photography. His social concerns include not only environmental issues, but the uses, abuses, and influences of visual media. While answering questions from the audience, Caponigro will display an alternate body of work entitled "Wastelands."
Entries for PhotoSpiva 2007 must be postmarked by February 13, 2007.
